This project will be executed in Dharavi (one of Asia’s largest slums) in Mumbai, India. Here, education is a way out of poverty. Thus, students can learn their ABCs, while frolicking. These are educational alphabetical tiles cemented on the ground with both regional languages and English for young Dharavi kids to learn while playing. Sing-along nursery song tiles / posters on the sides of the hut walls will provide the needed fun and education for the young ones. Some of the wall spaces could be utilized to color and wipe on the large coloring boards. Poem tiles will give the young ones a song to sing in each by lane.

City Forward was produced with the BMW Guggenheim Lab, a mobile laboratory traveling around the world to inspire innovative ideas for urban life.
